About the Gjelina Group
Named for founder Fran Camaj’s mother, Gjelina opened on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in 2008, serving locally-sourced, produce-forward food and becoming a staple in the Venice community.
Since then, our businesses have evolved with our neighborhood — with our menus guided by conversations and long-standing relationships with Southern California farmers, local ranchers, fishermen, and co-ops.
In fall 2022, we opened our first East Coast outpost with Gjelina NY, located at 45 Bond Street in Noho.
Gjelina Group Foundation
The Gjelina Group Foundation is a 501c3 registered nonprofit dedicated to uplifting communities through the support of programs committed to food, farming, arts, and environmental sustainability.
Goods for cooking, gathering, and living — daily essentials created and curated for our restaurants, brought together in a space two doors down from Gjusta Bakery.
